Runway Beauty: Embellished Eyes at Rodarte A/W 2015

To create the idea of a delicate, refined beauty, models were given a soft, embellished eye and shiny, wavy locks at Rodarte A/W 2015.

Hair: Odile Gilbert for John Frieda

After prepping skin with NARSskin Luminous Moisture Cream and NARSskin Total Replenishing Eye Cream, Kaliardos applied All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation and Radiant Creamy Concealer for a flawless canvas. He added a radiant glow on the cheeks with Tribulation Blush (available Fall 2015) and the left side of the upcoming Dual-Intensity Blush in Fervor.

On the eyes, he used a shimmering beachy bronze color (the right side of Dual-Intensity Blush in in Craving) on the lid, Rue Bonaparte Larger than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner on the waterline and coated lashes with Audacious Mascara. Then, he placed strips of 10 tiny Swarovski crystals crystals on the lower lashline for extra depth and shine.

To finish, he toned down the lips’ natural color with Radiant Creamy Concealer and topped with Chelsea Girls Lip Gloss.

Hair-wise, it was all about incredible shine and movement. Depending on the hair’s natural texture, Gilbert applied either Frizz Ease Beyond Smooth Frizz Immunity Primer or Frizz Ease Dream Curls Air-Dry Waves Styling Foam to wet hair. Next, she blow dried the hair while combing through with fingers and sprayed Beach Blonde Sea Waves Sea Salt Spray, working in with hands while diffusing. Once all the hair was dry, she took random pieces and curled them using a 1.5 inch curling iron, leaving the roots and ends untouched. As a finishing touch, she sprayed Frizz Ease KeraFLEX Hairspray to hold the style and brushed through with a natural bristle brush.

Runway Beauty: Indian Inspired Eyes and Nails at Libertine A/W 2015

February 19th, 2015

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

With vague references to mythology and Indian culture, the Libertine A/W 2015 collection centered around a beauty look that consisted of a dramatic cat eye and heavily adorned nails.

Nails: CND

To convey the idea of “a Libertine girl set in celebratory India”, Miller created a traditional black eye with a splash of neon pigments. She blended M·A·C Midnight Well Eyeshadow in Black Onyx on the crease before buffing M·A·C Carbon Eyeshadow along the edges to elongate the eyes. She left the center of the lid and brow bone bare but added Midnight Well Eyeshadow in Black Onyx in the inner brow and lower lashline. She lined the upper lashline with M·A·C Pointblack Liquidlast Liner and pressed M·A·C Jet Couture Pressed Pigment onto the center of the lid and under the brow bone. She finished the look by adding a pop of color through the middle part of the hair with M·A·C Process Magenta Pigment mixed with hairspray.

The eye-catching, golden nails created by the CND Design Lab Team were constructed with CND® Liquid & Powder, painted with VINYLUX® Weekly Polish and embellished with CND® Additives and a variety of unconventional materials and architectural accessories. Abstract shark teeth nails, inspired by baguettes on the sleeves of the Libertine garments, featured blinding gold studs in varying textures with one giant shark tooth extending halfway up the finger. Other models donned chandelier chains reminiscent of dripping melted gold, which were webbed together between the fingers for an over-the-top molten metal effect. The lavish 3D looks were tricked out with 2,500 hand-placed paillettes, 600 feet of gold chain and 110 individually sculpted shark teeth.

At Jason Wu A/W 2015, the look was all about barely-there beauty with a hint of neutrals on the eyes and soft, natural waves.

Lead artist Diane Kendal gave skin a bare matte finish with Lancome Advanced Genifique Youth Activity Serum and Nude Miracle Liquid-to-Power Makeup. She slightly defined the cheeks with Solaire Star Bronzer and the eyes with Fresh Face and Barely There from the upcoming Jason Wu for Lancome Multi-Palette and added Grandiose Mascara on curled lashes. She finished the look with Lancome L’Absolu Rouge in Delicate Lace.

On the nails, manicurist Deborah Lippmann created a modern nude look with Lancome Vernis in Love in Beige Romance.

Hair-wise, Odile Gilbert working for Kérastase Paris created a sexy, natural look with no volume at the crown. Starting with wet hair, Gilbert applied Kérastase Spray à Porter Buildable Texture Spray from roots to ends and blow dried with a diffuser, using fingers to enhance natural texture without adding volume at the roots. She parted hair in the middle and used a curling iron to create waves in the mid-lengths of the hair, leaving the ends straight. Next, she applied Kérastase V.I.P. Dry Volumizing and Texturizing Spray for texture and ran fingers through the waves to create a natural look before finishing with Kérastase Laque Dentelle Flexible Hold Hairspray.

Runway Beauty: Masculine Femininity at Marissa Webb A/W 2015

February 13th, 2015

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

To balance out the Bianca Jagger inspired mix of femininity and masculinity in the Marissa Webb A/W 2015 collection, Maybelline artist Yadim teamed up with TRESemmé Stylist Jeanie Syfu to create a soft and fresh look on the models.

Yadim started out with Dream Wonder Fluid Touch Foundation for the base. He applied Face Studio Master Conceal where needed and around the brows to soften them. He used a taupe shade from THE NUDES Palette to contour cheeks, Eye Studio Color Tattoo 24 Hour Cream-Gel Shadow in Barely Branded to highlight the high plains of the face and added Eye Studio Color Molten in Rose Haze to give the cheeks a pink glow.

On the eyes, he created a tinted effect by applying Eye Studio Color Molten in Taupe Craze up to the browbone and below the lower lashline. Then he added Eye Studio Color Tattoo 24 Hour Cream-Gel Shadow in Barely Branded on the inner corners of the eyes and the bronze shade in Eye Studio Color Molten in Endless Mocha on the lid before glossing it up with Baby Lips in Quenched. He further defined the eyes by adding Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner from the middle of the lid outward past the edge of the eye.

Finally, he added Color Sensational Lipcolor in Born With It and Color Sensational The Mattes in Nude Embrace on the lips for a soft, natural-looking effect.

Syfu created two different looks on the models. To create the braided bun for a girly look, she prepped wet hair with TRESemmé Perfectly (un)Done Wave Creating Sea Foam, rough dried it and lightly finished the hairline and ends with a Mason Pearson brush. Using a tail comb, she created a center part from the forehead to the middle of the crown, then parted hair from ear to ear and back brush this section for added texture. Next, she pulled the top section of hair straight back and secured with an elastic. Then, she divided the remaining hair into two parts and back brush and tied sections into a knot at the top of the ponytail and started a three-strand braid through the lengths, fastening ends with an elastic. She wrapped the lengths of the braid into a bun at the nape of the neck and secured with large hairpins before setting with TRESemmé Perfectly (un)Done Ultra Brushable Hairspray.

For the texturized down-do a la Bianca Jagger at a boys club, Syfu first prepped hair with TRESemmé Perfectly (un)Done Wave Creating Sea Foam and rough dried it. Then she back brushed hair for a light, airy texture and created a center part. To finish, she applied TRESemmé Perfectly (un)Done Wave Perfecting Gelee and TRESemmé Perfectly (un)Done Sea Salt Spray throughout the hair for texture.

Runway Beauty: Glowy Skin with Red Lip at Zac Posen Spring/Summer 2015

September 10th, 2014

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

At Zac Posen Spring/Summer 2015, the beauty focus was healthy, glowing skin paired with subtle glossy eyes, graphic red lips and a glossy feminine pompadour.

Makeup: Kabuki for M·A·C Cosmetics
Hair: Odile Gilbert for Kérastase Paris

“Simplicity is its strength, which fits with mood of this season’s collection.” Explained key make-up artist Kabuki. He first toned the skin with witch-hazel to get the skin very clean. Then, he applied a diffusing clear primer all over and a very sheer layer of Face & Body Foundation in warmer tones around the outside of the face and across the nose and cheeks. A bit of Something Special Crèmeblend Blush was used to heighten the translucent, sun-kissed look of the skin while Shine Mixing Medium added for an athletic glow on the top of the cheekbone. Any blemishes or discolorations showing through were hidden with Studio Finish Concealer applied with a tiny brush. A peach-toned concealer was used to brighten the under-eye area.

On the eyes, Groundwork Paint Pot was applied as a sheer layer to shape and lightly sculpt. M·A·C PRO Gloss Texture and M·A·C PRO Reflects Pearl Glitter were mixed together and swept over the eye for added dimension and shine while top and bottom lashes were coated with two coats of Haute & Naughty Black Lash Mascara.

To create the bold pout, Kabuki filled in the lips with Cherry Lip Pencil to enhance the natural lip shape before adding Red Lip Mix over the pencil for a deep orangy/red, semi-matte finish.

On dry hair, Gilbert created a deep side part and put an ample amount of Forme Fatale on the top and sides of the head for an ultra-glossy look. Using a small tooth comb, she combed the sides in an upwards motion, tight against the head and worked in more Forme Fatale. She added Lift Vertige to the front section for volume, and combed in an upward swoop to create a modern push wave, using the tail of the comb to detail the look. Next, she blow dried the push wave to set the style and applied Kératine Thermique throughout the rest of the lengths to create a shiny, wet look. Finally, she locked the style in place with Laque Noire.
